Those blue/green droppings indicate that some idiot poisoned this rat.

I commonly extract dead animal carcasses from homes and property. The very animals that commonly invade houses die inside houses, and when they do, they create a very unpleasant odor as the carcass decays. The successful removal of deceased wildlife definitely requires experience and knowledge of building architecture and animal behavior. I've cut and pried open every nook and cranny imaginable to locate and remove rotting critter bodies. I am the best - I always find the animal, deodorize and decontaminate the area, and seal up the hole I've cut open. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Dead Animals page.

Another Case of Rat Poisoning - I can completely understand the wrath you feel when you see a rat in your house. They are disgusting to most people and can spread around harmful diseases. I understand that part too. To deal with the unwelcome arrival of these intruders, many people resort to feed them with rat poison. Although effective, the unfortunate drawback to using poison is ending up with dead rat bodies in the walls, attics and many other uncomfortable spaces. Soon a stench will start to permeate the air and it may be difficult to find out just where all of those rats went to their final resting ground. Not to mention the worry for diseases spread by dead rats as well from their feces and urine as well as their bodies.

As you might be able to see in the picture here, the rat droppings scattered around the carcass are bright blue, clearly indicating that it fed on poison laid down by the homeowners inside the attic, which is where it ended up dying. The common rat poison available at Wal-Mart matches the rat droppings I saw around the rat and was the exact same color.

It is a good idea to call out a professional to get rid of the rat bodies; however, if this is something you wish to do on your own then make sure you are completely prepared with the right protective equipment (gloves, mask, containers and so forth). Search areas that are dark, such as the attic, for the animals – let your nose help guide you. Once you have located the bodies, they will need to be disposed of properly and the area thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Next step is to take precautionary methods to prevent more rats from getting in such as sealing up holes and cracks that make it easy for other rats to find a home in your home.
